‘Vampire Academy’ Prepping Its Curriculum

Correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks like the books that the upcoming Vampire Academy is based on are doing some fairly shameless Twilight aping. That being said, this thing takes place in a school, right? So the hiring of Mark Waters (Heathers) to write and Dan Waters (Mean Girls) to direct is actually a pretty damn good sign. After all, Heathers and Mean Girls are two of mainstream cinema’s best high school takedowns so perhaps they can do something interesting and sharp with this.

Don Murphy (Transformers 1-4) is producing, so it looks like this thing might actually happen. In the film, “Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human/vampire, guardians of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discretely within our world. Her legacy is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi. This is her story.

You can check out more on the film’s Facebook page. Based on the talent involved, color me interested. Also, someone let me know if these books are actually any good!
